Pensions Manager

Baptist Union of Great Britain, Didcot

The Baptist Union of Great Britain links more than 2,000 churches, 13 associations and 5 colleges across England and Wales.

The Baptist Pension Scheme has been through many stages over its life and has faced some major challenges in addressing funding shortfalls and increased regulation in recent years.  Our present Pensions Manager joined this journey in 2013 and has led the way through a period of major consolidation and development in the areas of DB administration, debt management, governance and investment review.  The ‘Family Solution’ agreed at the latest actuarial valuation means the Scheme is well placed for the next stage of its journey.  As well as following through on the DB solution, we are looking for someone with a passion to deliver a good quality DC service for our churches, their minsters and staff.

What are we looking for?
The Baptist Union of Great Britain and the Trustee of the Baptist Pension Scheme are seeking a full-time Pensions Manager to oversee the operation of the Scheme.  This is an exciting opportunity to take the Scheme through the next stage of its journey.  There will be opportunity to work alongside the existing Pensions Manager for a transition period.
The ideal candidate would be someone with experience in the pensions field, preferably as a pensions manager, alongside an understanding of the Baptist church family.  The role covers a wide range of financial and legal areas.  Liaison with all of the Trustee’s advisers and service providers is required, as well as providing support to the Trustee, to members and to employers.  We are looking for someone who is able to combine administrative efficiency with inter-personal skills.
Attendance at Trustee meetings and meetings with advisers will be required, typically in London, Birmingham, Didcot and Bristol.  Otherwise it will be possible to work from home, although the option of working at Baptist House in Didcot may be beneficial.  Computer equipment and training will be provided.
